I honestly didn't plan to start making preserves and hot sauce in the middle of the Christmas preparations.

So, the season of constant potluck suppers is upon us. We have to come up with enjoyable food that is portable, and easily served from a buffet table.

What are your favourite potluck recipes? Appetizers? Main dishes? Desserts?

I'm not a huge fan of turkey, so any recipe that can make it exciting is a Good Thing, and deserves to be pimped far and wide! The saviour of festive tradition and family cohesion in this case is courtesy of UK posh supermarket chain Waitrose, and is accompanied by a complementary and equally delicious cranberry & apple tarte Tatin:

Enjoy :)

It's almost time for the holiday season. Which means...Holiday parties!!! :D

Here's a quick, and very easy dessert that you can whip up a few hours before the party or before the family gets to your house!

For a cookbook swap, I decided I had to make a HP cookbook.. so of course, I made it one of the Right Honorable Molly Weasley.

Crappy photo!Collapse )

It (sorry for crappy picture.. I should have scanned it).

Mrs. Weasley's copy of Archibald Alderton's "Witches Cooking Around the World Series 5: India" is full of Indian recipes. (And it even has her notes on the different recipes). I forget how big it is.. The notes were really my favorite part, a few were along the lines of "add more coconut, raisins, rice... Harry too thin." and "cut oil and salt in half... Arthur getting older!"

It was really fun to make this, and I plan to make another one for a friend with more britishy/mom recipes instead of India.

I embroidered the cover in gold.
A recipe I included..

So, it's been quiet here lately. I figured I'd toss out my very first knitting project for which I designed the pattern. Is it Potter related? No. But, you could knit one of these in Hogwarts colours to be the coolest kid in school.

I got myself an iPod nano. So far I love it, but i'd been hearing stories about people getting theirs all scratched. Since the cases aren't ready yet for the nano, I decided to knit my own along the lines of the iSock. But more functional.

Pattern and more picturesCollapse )

I suppose I could've put a pocket on the front for my earphones, but I didn't think of it in time.

Hope someone gets some use out of this - or at least enjoys the pictures :)

Cheers.

Manty are Central Asian steamed dumplings. You can make vegetarian filling with mashed potatoes instead of meat. Cooking time may vary if you do this, but I haven't experimented to figure it out.

I posted this over at hp_knitting but I figured as it's so quiet here, no one would mind a cross post.

The "animal cracker hat" is from The Prisoner of Azkaban film, from when Ron eats an animal cracker and roars like a lion. They're in their jammies and such and Ron is wearing a shallow tight-fitting fair isle hat, with ear flaps and long, loosely braided tassles.

Oh my, so quiet around here lately, hehe.

Anyway, winter holidays are coming up and I'm going away for a week or so. Thing is, we're cooking for ourselves. I'm not the world's best cook, and my idea of dinner is usually getting one of those pasta packs that comes with the noodles and dry powder and dumping that into a pot. *laughs*
So I'm just wondering if anyone's got any ideas for dinners that are quick and easy, but also tasty?

Thankyou in advance luvlies!

rainwen's last post reminded me of this. I don't have a clue where it's from - it's handwritten and foodstained in my mother's recipe binder, I've been making it for years.

Don't be put off by the idea of savoury pancakes, by the way. I promise, these are brilliant. :D
